53 A COLLECTION OF ART
This deck was born from Mark’s first venture into painting. Each piece depicts an interpretation of one of the 53 cards found in a standard deck of cards.
Painted in Acrylic, on a 20 x 25cm canvases, the work was completed over a one year period while at sea on board various cruise ships.
The paintings were scanned at high resolution and transformed into a deck of cards. Each card has a black border representing the frame of the artwork and the back design is taken from the back of one of the canvases used.
Each deck contains 56 cards.
